My 4-year-old son has some seriously dry skin on the bottom of one foot. The only thing that seems to work is Neutrogena Foot Cream, but I don't put it on everyday since we don't bathe everyday. The foot has been this way for over a year now, spreading slowly, and the pediatrician keeps saying not to worry about it - kids' feet do all kinds of weird stuff that clears up. And it has never hurt or itched, so I didn't worry about it. But last night, he showed me that it has spread to the top of his foot and said that that part hurts. It's not on the other foot...yet! He rarely goes barefoot anywhere, and his shoes have been changed a few times since he's growing like crazy. There are no sores, pus or blood...just dry, peeling skin. The pediatrician did specifically say that it's not athlete's foot or any fungus. Any clue?
